"Letter to Alexander Trachtenberg in New York from Nicholas Dozenberg in Chicago, June 19, 1924."
Copy of a letter in the CPUSA/Comintern Archives in Moscow discussing the formation of International Publishers, a publishing arm of the Communist Party USA. At the time of this writing, Trachtenberg was first contemplating the organization and direction of International Publishers, while Dozenberg was the head of the Literature Department of the Workers Party of America, as the CPUSA was known at that date.
This letter indicates that volition to establish International Publishers was Trachtenberg's, while the WPA Literature Department's assistance was limited to advice and a mailing list.
